COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
We brew Wandle Ale using traditional methods and materials sourced locally from English producers. We are proud to use Maris Otter malt from Warminster Maltings, one of the few remaining floor maltings in the country. We use a combination of traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops varieties, together with the more modern Boadicea hedgerow variety to flavour our beers. All of the hops used in the brewing process are whole leaf which give Wandle its distinctive hoppy taste and aroma. At 3.8% abv Wandle Ale is a well balanced thirst quenching session ale.

Not bad, but nothing special. Not daring enough for a microbrewery in my books

johninmelb (1123) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Slightly yeasty but otherwise pleasant malt nose with some honey notes. Pours gold with no head. Flavour is slightly lagerish but balanced ok. Finish is dry but slightly cloying. All told, a little disappointing on most fronts but nothing ostensibly offensive. A quaffer, when not much else is around.

Bottle. Would have thought that the style was aluminum golden ale. Amber with light head and a bit of lace. Golden grany ale. Some hops and a dry aluminum characteristic.

500ml brown bottle. Clear gold pour. Head is white, about one finger of foam. head retention is decent, lots of sticky foam around the edges and a thin layer of foam over the liquid. Nose has mild caramel tones, light biscuity notes, grain, light UK type hops giving a little citrus, but mild overall. Taste has grains, light sweetness from malts, light hints of orange hops. Finish has a slight orange peel note, low bitterness, faint caramel and grains lingering as well. Body is light, smooth and mild carboantion. Decent session bitter.

reebtogi (4042) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and pine. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness up front, finishing with a piney hop bitterness that lingers a while. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A respectable English bitter, but certainly not near the top of the heap.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2012
On cask at The Sun. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with an oily mouth-feel and a dry finish.

JorgeLee (1137) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Cask, several times around London but on the rated occasion in the Windsor Castle W8. This beer is a sort of old school British session bitter, immortalised for me by the New Year’s Eve in Clapham somewhere when Geoff had to concede that he had been ’out-Wandled’. Unfortunately it isn’t a legendary beer, very middle of the road bitter, more malty I guess, slight hint of dishwater, ok drinking beer when four or five down, pretty dull when sober.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2012 50cl bottle from the brewery at 4.2% ABV. A rather average bitter. Amber with a white head; caramel malt aroma; caramel flavour with a touch of citrus, and rather lacking inthe hops department. Perhaps better from the cask?

Beersiveknown (2734) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 5, 2012
Light brown with fluffy cream head. Aroma is good, some yeast esters and earthy spices. First taste is a bit off-putting..probably myold nemesis fuggles giving a slight dishwater quality which is soon replaced by s aburst of citrus and a big digestive biscuitmalt finish, just ok.
